SEATTLE — Seattle police detectives are asking for help in identifying a man who violently attacked two women in the Belltown and University District neighborhoods a day apart.
Police say in both cases the man was wearing the same clothes, he kicked both women in the face, and attacked them from behind.
“There was no interaction between the two. They didn’t speak, they didn’t exchange words,” said Seattle police officer Valerie Carson.
On Wednesday, police say the man stepped on a bus near Northeast 43rd and University Avenue.
Police believe the man became agitated about a woman talking on the phone, and he can be seen on surveillance video approaching the woman from behind and kicking her in the head. She suffered a concussion in the attack.
Around 5 p.m. Thursday, a 56-year-old woman was planting flower bulbs on the sidewalk on Fourth Avenue and Blanchard Street when the man approached her from behind and kicked her in the side of her head, investigators said.
